Michel Angelo suit, any good?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Recently saw one of these at what seemed like a good price, wondering if they are well made suits. It said Loro Piana fabric. Also, if they are good, how long do they run, because this one is a 52 regular (41 regular), and I'm not sure it will be long enough, depending on the style.

Yes they are good (they are a part of the Isaia group) and they seem to run long in the jacket. Great $500 and under suit (assuming you are getting it at $500 or under) , I would compare it to Polo Blue Label.

How do they run in the shoulders? This one is a 52, I am usually a 40, but got away with a Z by Zegna in a 52 (a lot of tailoring).

For those familiar with Michel Angelo, how is the construction? Are they fused? Canvased?

I'm wearing a Michel Angelo suit today. I picked up two of them off of STP a few months back for less than $300. At that price, I think they're a great suit. They are fused, but it seems to be a very light fusing. Not at all stiff. Most of all, I like the cut and the way they fit me. Their 38 fits me quite well off the rack. One of the few suits I didn't even bother having the waist taken in on. I never noticed the jacket being long. Definitely not as long as my Gianluca Isaia (as someone mentioned, they're made by the same group.)

Fairly natural shoulder, 3-button with a decent lapel roll (I never button the top one), pick-stitching, double vented, Loro Piana 120s, and slim flat-front pants.

Obviously they're not at the same level as some of the high end names that get discussed here, but at the price I paid, they've quickly become two of my favorite go-to suits for everyday wear.

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know what stores carry them? I've never seen or heard of them anywhere other than STP.

If I am not mistaken, they are canvassed with fused lapels. Construction is very good at the price point.

OP: A 52 will probably be too big for you at the shoulders, chest and length

Too bad, this one was on STP, btw, for $255, but all they had were 48 and 52. If only they'd had a 50. . . Oh well, I should be hitting the Barney's sale again this weekend, so don't feel too bad for me.

STP has some nice looking Michel Angelo overcoats at good prices.

Yeah, For $187, I'd get one of these in every color if they had my size

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "canvassed with fused lapels," but for clarification, my two Michel Angelos are fully fused. No canvas anywhere. Nevertheless, that doesn't bother me much. In my opinion, construction quality is high for a fused suit. At the $255 STP price, they're a great deal.

Looks like there is a 50 available in Navy on the site:
Here's the link

Same site as the one I saw, but this one has pleated pants, and I'd rather a flat front suit from Men's Warehouse than a pleated Brioni!
